Planting Bare Root Phlox | Perennial Garden

Phlox are hard to grow from seed... but not from bare roots. That's what we'll do in this quick video. Join me as we plant up our bare root phlox from our friends at @blomsterverdendanmark Phlox are one of our favorites here in our Danish garden... mainly for their beauty and delightful fragrance. And, these flowers are a low-maintenance gem. (who doesn't love that?!) Looking for a great cut flower? With its vibrant and long-lasting blooms available in a rainbow of colors, phlox adds a splash to any floral display. When it comes to cultivating phlox in your garden, there are 2 primary methods: sowing seeds or planting bare roots. As I mentioned, I think it's quite hard to collect the seeds of phlox. Bare root plants, dormant and nurtured in nurseries before being distributed, are an eco-friendly solution over buying a plastic-grown-container one in your garden center. Here's a simple guide to planting bare root phlox: 1. Source your bare roots from reliable suppliers. 2. Choose a location in your garden, preferably one with full sun exposure OR start with a pot like we do in our video. 3. If you're planting outside, ensure spacing of at least 30cm between plants. 4. Whether you're potting or planting outdoors, untangle the roots and hydrate them with water before planting if necessary. 5. Plant the roots and backfill the soil, ensuring they are adequately settled but not compacted in. When is the best time to plant? April, May, June Phlox thrives when planted in late spring, after the threat of frost has passed, allowing them ample time to establish themselves. Let me know if you're growing phlox in your garden.

Easiest Way to Get Hellebores for Free | Perennial Garden

In this video, I'll show you the easiest way to grow your own Hellebores without spending a dime. And we'll go over 2 of my favorite varieties in the garden now — Helleborus orientalis and Helleborus foetidus (the stinky hellebore). How to get Hellebores for free: 1. Baby Seedlings: Keep an eye on the ground around your Hellebores, especially this time of year in the early spring. You might spot tiny seedlings sprouting from last year's seeds. With their shiny green leaves, these little ones are easy to transplant. At this time of year these leaves will be on top of a little stalk that’s about 2-3 cm tall.Just scoop them up gently with a trowel, keeping the soil intact when possible, and relocate them to their new home. They won't even notice the move. 2. Let Them Self-Seed: Allow your Hellebores to self-seed throughout your garden. Each new seedling will be a unique blend of its parents, adding to the tapestry of colors and shapes in your landscape. Who knows what colors you'll get? 3. Divide Them: While they don't particularly love being divided, you can do it in the late autumn. We'll talk more about that in the video. Unlike some finicky flowers, Hellebores are resilient. You can plant them year-round, as long as the ground isn't frozen. Keep an eye out for bargain finds at garden centers, even in the summer months. Once they're settled in, though, they prefer to stay put, so choose their spot wisely. Of course, no garden is without its challenges. For Hellebores, the main problem is leaf spot, a pesky fungal infection that mars their foliage. Stay vigilant and remove any affected leaves promptly to keep your plants looking their best.
